EDITORS’ NOTES

The eclectic mix of muscular hard rock, brutal metal, and melodic balladry on O God Save Us All reaffirms why Disciple has survived and thrived for two decades. Vocalist Kevin Young leads his comrades through a bracing set of tunes that show off the band’s full sonic range while keeping its lyrics rooted in Christian faith. Disciple has always combined intense delivery with accessible songwriting, and this set is no exception. For those who admire the group’s '90s releases, songs like “Unstoppable” and “RIP” should satisfy any fan’s hunger for raw aggression. Young lets his snarling side take full control on “Kings,” the album’s most searing track. On the spectrum's other end are such radio-friendly ballads as “Draw the Line” (a celebration of spiritual surrender embellished by Micah Sannan’s chiming guitar lines) and “Trade a Moment” (a love song with both earthly and heavenly resonance). The hard-charging “Outlaws” and the uplifting “Beautiful Scars” have the ring of classic Christian rock anthems. Taken together, O God‘s tracks are a sustained testimony of belief delivered with a winning combination of ferocity and finesse.

Amazing, As Always!

Bostaffwarrior,

I have been a Disciple fan for several years now. I own all their CDs and have autographed copies of 3 of them. This CD is arguably their best one so far. I still can't decide if I like Scars Remain more, but O God Save Us All is phenomenal! I highly recommend it, because Disciple has everything on this CD. From heavy tracks that speak of our relationship to the world through God and how we can be confident He will win in the end (Outlaws, Unstoppable, Kings, ect), to slower songs that make you reflect on who you are in the light of God's greatness and His work on the cross (Someday and Beautiful Scars); this CD gives you a well rounded listening experience that anyone will be able to enjoy. So what are you waiting for? Go buy it now!

Rockin' hard with a clear message of hope.

jdshot,

Disciple have pulled together a great album here. Recalling the hard rock days of By God and Scars Remain with a fresh feel and energy. The album flows nicely from start to finish keeping to its theme of the Christian life. You can't help being affected by the fire in the hearts of this band. Hard rocking angst into amazed revelation to honest love and joy. You'll want to bang your head, drive too fast and jump up and down while waving your rawk fist and singing at the top of your lungs!
Outlaws calls to the lost and angry youth in us all.
O God is a cry of recognition and desire for freedom from this strife filled life
R.I.P. declares that freedom and lets those fears know what they can do
Once and for all expresses gratitude in a soaring chorus that lifts the spirit
Draw The Line slows things down a bit as is that deciding moment we must face if we are to move forward in life
Kings brings back the ROCK and new found power of a life aligned with the King of Kings
Unstoppable further explores that power and kicks into a higher gear
The One is a live crowd anthem that encourages us that we are never alone
Beautiful Scars reminds us that what we were ashamed of can be used by God for our glory and His.
Trade A Moment dances across the sky in a beautiful rock fueled expression of love and joy

About Disciple

Christian hard rock outfit Disciple was formed in 1992 by friends Kevin Young, Brad Noah, Tim Barrett, and Adrian DiTommasi (who would leave the band shorty after inception) in an attempt to spread the Gospel while playing the loud, metallic music they loved. Over the years, their style evolved into one similar to many secular alternative metal groups, as they toured churches, high schools, colleges, and similar venues. Their self-released debut, What Was I Thinking, came out in 1995, followed by an EP, My Daddy Can Whip Your Daddy, on Warner Resound in 1997. Their sophomore full-length effort, This Might Sting a Little Bit, followed two years later on Rugged Records. By God followed in 2001 on the same label.

2003's Back Again found the band on a new label, their own independent Slain Records. That year, the trio became a quartet with the addition of bassist Joey Fife to their lineup. The group signed with INO Records the following year and released a self-titled LP in June of 2005.

Scars Remain arrived on Integrity in late 2006. After years of nominations, the album won the band their first Dove Award for Rock Album of the Year.

In 2008, Noah and Fife stepped down from the band and their spots were filled by bassist Israel Beachy and guitarists Andrew Welch and Micah Sannan. Southern Hospitality arrived later that year. Before their next release, founding drummer Tim Barrett would also part ways with Disciple, replaced by Trent Reiff.

Horseshoes & Hand Grenades, Disciple's eighth LP, in April 2010. It topped the Christian chart and entered the Billboard Top 50. As the band's popularity grew, they embarked on a handful of tours with other top Christian acts like Thousand Foot Krutch and Skillet.

2012 saw the release of O God Save Us All, as well as a flurry of line-up changes. After four years with Disciple, Welch left the band to join Thousand Foot Krutch, while Sannan and Beachy were replaced by Josiah Prince (Philmont) and Jason Wilkes (High Flight Society). By early 2013, Reiff exited and was replaced by Joey West. Andrew Stanton also joined the band, leaving Young as the only original member.

The refreshed quintet forged ahead with the crowd-funded release of 2014's Attack, which was their highest Billboard 200 entry to date, peaking at number 44. Produced by longtime Disciple producer Travis Wyrick, Attack also rose to the number two spots on the Hard Rock and Christian charts. It would be the first and last album with Wilkes on bass, who left the band the next year.

Vultures, a six-song EP recorded during the Attack sessions, was released at the end of 2015. Another EP, Live in Denmark, arrived the following year, accompanied by a series of concert videos from Denmark's RiverFest.

The band -- now a quartet -- issued another crowd-funded effort in 2016. Their eleventh album, Long Live the Rebels debuted at number 125, making it the band's sixth Billboard 200 entry to date. ~ Neil Z. Yeung & Steve Huey
